Mesut Özil: 2019/20 Performances

Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by razörist, Aug 9, 2019.


Why Isn't Özil Playing?

  1. Simple. Isn’t played for tactical reasons.

  2. Simple. Isn’t played because he isn’t good enough

  3. Falling out with Arteta for some reason

  4. Being frozen out in an effort to get him to leave. Arteta’s hands are tied

  5. Because he didn't take a pay-cut

  6. Personal reasons

    New contract? I read that as agent saying he thinks Özil will easily walk into another top club in 2021 rather than MLS everyone expects him to move to. Probably serie A. Inter or Juve. Wage will probably have to be a lot less than what he's been earning here but he won't starve.

    Based on what?

    He's on 2 assists, and only had 3 in total last season. That's dreadful.

    He’s our only midfielder comfortable playing in advanced positions.

    He’s been trash but who else is there in the squad?

    Being the only natural number 10 in the squad doesn't mean he's our most creative player though.

    May as well stick with him given how comfortable he is in possession, but he's an absolute shadow of a top player at this point. Offers about as much penetration as an ice-cream dildo, as fabo was apt to say.

    Don’t think we’re actually disagreeing :lol:

    For now we’re forced into playing him but the club should be looking at two players to replace him in the summer imo.

    He’s done.

    Yeah, this.

    ESR is on loan and needs the fitness and confidence. Willock has hit a bit of a wall and isn't quite as comfortable higher up. Ceballos is better in deeper positions. Nelson is a potentially good candidate but he's obviously not thought of as an option there. There's literally nobody else unless we scrap the #10 and go for a 3-man midfield - which comes with it's own problems IMO as the options we consider for that type of midfield lacks the dynamism to help the attack (for this, Willock arguably would be a good option but Arteta insists he's a #10).

    So yeah, we only really have Özil to play there. If I was Arteta, I'd seriously consider Nelson as an alternative but I really don't think he will.

    He’ll be free though, good squaddy for an Inter, in a less demanding league.

    Looking through some clips from his Real days. No doubt about it, he was elite in his position back in the days.

    When we bought him he was a player with stature and we hadn’t bought a player like that in a long time. He was well known and played for the world’s biggest club.

    His luck was that we got Alexis in, who really elevated our attack. Think many still lean on that memory failing to see that much of his relative success at Arsenal was due to Alexis.

    Now Özil has faded into nothing. He is real poverty if we are honest. A bit of jogging, sideways and backwards passes. Think we simply have to leave it to some to continue to live in a dream that really never was.

    This is the level we've plummeted to. We're now making excuses for Özil while rips us off. This is arguably the greatest con of all time.

    I've never seen a player give 3 assist per season and still be on 350kpw. I don't really blame the guy though. It's not his fault.

    It was that bald feck, Ivan who fecked us.

    It's not like clubs were queuing up to sign him back in 2017. No sane club would have paid him that insane wage.

    It was a terrible decision, more so in hindsight. Yet with the benefit of hindsight, some Arsenal fans are still defending him.

    Guess to a certain extent it is better to just make ones peace with the ****ty situation we have been put in with Özil. Personally I always struggle with that though. Like an irritating itch you cannot scratch. But it’s only roughly 16 months to go and then this risible piece of **** of a player is finally gone, we can lock this thread and finally move on. Hopefully that will also take some of his deluded fan boys with it. Doubt many of them actually support Arsenal deep down, but more like to engage in forum trolling and self pleasing. Hopefully there will be some second rate Turkish club forum they can enjoy.

    He had that period just before he was offered a deal where he was very good to fantastic for about 7 games. I must admit at that point I said **** it, as long as he is producing something near this long term, who cares about the extra 100k a week. I was open to him getting 350k, even if there’s no way he’d ever truly earn it because what footballers bar prime messi and cr7 does? You could add some players on hot streaks like salah and mane, but that’s it. He had unbelievable leverage at the time and his people took advantage of the situation.

    it’s a bit like the Pepe deal. What was he worth to a club far less desperate? Not £72m, most probably. But us? We had to get it over the line, get him producing and forget about it.
